Where was this book when I my boys were young? I was always on the run and didn’t have time to pack the perfect bag full of books. If I had a book like this on my iPad or iPhone to distract them (in line at the supermarket or waiting at a medical appointment), it would have been perfect. Once my boys discovered electronic devices, I can’t seem to get them to want to do anything else. The author has the right idea; start making reading literacy fun and interactive right from the beginning. I recommended the book to my sister-in-law, who has two young boys. Not surprisingly, my nephews love it!
Charming, a great read
Charming, fun, and full of the sweetest illustrations, you’ll enjoy this book as much as your child loves the nursery rhymes.
Helen makes the topic of literacy so approachable. I love the reflections and activities in each chapter! I’m telling all my mom-friends about Nursery Rhymes.
